Nessa ~ You know I think I remember seeing that xD the loop thing! Thanks for telling me that~ That's probably what I'm going to do.
With all this bias/non bias talk going on it makes me realize there's still a lot I need to learn about fabric. I kinda get what bias is but at the same time I don't. RESEARCH TIME...might help explain why the hems of my dresses are always all bacon-y
LEslie ~ Sorry sweetie I must have missed your post.
Reinforced Plastic Flexible Boning (similar to what they sell at Joanns), Synthetic Whale Boning or Rigilene would be your best bets.
This is the company I buy all my boning from. They're pretty good. http://www.corsetmaking.com/CMSpages/CMSboning.html
